City to Host Sugar Land Strong Event

Sugar Land, TX ­– Sugar Land will hold a community event called “Sugar Land Strong” on Sept. 23, at 5 p.m., at Sugar Land Town Square, located near U.S. Highway 59 and State Highway 6.  The event is intended to honor residents, local businesses, community organizations, employees and others in the community who supported hurricane response and recovery efforts.

“Please join us as we celebrate Sugar Land’s strength and resiliency,” said City Manager Allen Bogard. “The City truly came together during and after the storm. While City employees across our organization were hard at work managing the storm waters and responding to the emergency, neighbors were working hard to help their neighbors, and local businesses, organizations and individuals were supporting the City through opening up their doors as staging areas for displaced residents and providing food for emergency personnel.”

The “Sugar Land Strong” event will include music and booths for community organizations, with a performance by Mango Punch at 7:30 p.m. Merchandise will be sold to support relief efforts, and free Sugar Land Strong bracelets will be available for the first 1,000 people. City officials will speak at 6 p.m. to recognize residents impacted by the storm and thank those who helped throughout Hurricane Harvey.

For more information about the event, contact the Sugar Land Parks and Recreation Department at (281) 275-2825, email, visit, or follow the Sugar Land Parks and Recreation Department on social media at or
